The past and future of immigration was the subject of a community symposium in Fort Worth, Texas, co-hosted by the Baker Institute Center for the United States and Mexico, Rational Middle Media, and Texas Christian University’s Department of Journalism and the Department of Comparative Race and Ethnic Studies. The event also featured the screening of a short documentary film on immigration produced by Rational Middle Media.
